Betty Smith
Let Me Be
printer friendly version
Let me be something every minute of every hour of my life.
Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm.
Let me be hungry...have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or
well dressed. Let me be sincere-be deceitful. Let me be truthful;
let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me
be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me
dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost.

(from "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn")
